Discussion on: Why Older People Struggle In Programming Jobs

Very relatable. I think it does support the idea of making programming a more professional profession. More politics like an agreed code of ethics to support programming as a profession. We can't just "do what we're told" and it's a dangerous thing for new programmers to feel they need to do when it could be ethically flawed. Reaching the 40's now and I'll be damned if I'll give up any of my family or free time to wear myself out on any software work that isn't super urgent and preventing other employees from doing their work.
